An afternoon event with JAMES GRIFFIN, author of THE MAD MAN OF THE MOUNTAINS

Griffin has written westerns and historical novels, but this is his first turn with a contemporary thriller. Fast-paced, populated with compelling, intriguing characters, and filled with fascinating police procedure and breathtaking suspense, The Mad Man of the Mountains is great reading!

Again and again, bodies are discovered near the summits of some of New Hampshire's most picturesque mountains, brutally murdered by an ingenious serial killer who moves around the scenic wilderness like a deadly phantom. With few if any clues to go on, state police detective Paul Talbot sets out to track down this vicious killer before more innocent people die at the hands of a lunatic.

Horses, the United States West, the Texas Rangers, and New Hampshire have been Griffin’s four passions. He has penned several series of Texas Ranger novels and stories and The Mad Man of the Mountains is his first Detective Paul Talbot novel. Griffin has spent many happy hours riding his horse through the forests and fields, and exploring the White Mountains. A native New Englander, he currently makes his home in Keene.

BLOOD FOAM, A Lewis Cole Mystery  

Saturday, August 29, 2-4 pm
An afternoon event with BRENDAN DuBOIS, author of BLOOD FOAM, A Lewis Cole Mystery

It wouldn’t be summer without a visit from Brendan DuBois and we are happy to squeak him in during the last weekend in August. DuBois is the award-winning author of sixteen novels and more than 120 short stories. His short stories have twice won him the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America, and have also earned him three Edgar Allan Poe Award nominations. He lives in New Hampshire and we are very happy to have another Lewis Cole adventure!

A wounded and healing Lewis Cole—retired Department of Defense analyst and magazine columnist—returns to his fire-damaged home on Tyler Beach with two things on his mind: to recover from a bullet wound and to repair his nearly two hundred-year-old home before a hurricane scours his house into the unforgiving ocean. But just when his work has begun, former lover and journalist Paula Quinn comes to him with an urgent request. Her fiancé, attorney Mark Spencer, has gone missing. Phone calls, e-mails, and text messages have gone unanswered. His car is gone, and his home is empty.

Lewis is Paula’s last hope to find her missing fiancé, and despite his fear for what might happen to his home, Lewis agrees to search for the missing attorney. But one puzzling aspect of Mark’s life leads to Lewis asking more questions . . . until gunfire suddenly erupts in placid downtown Tyler. And Lewis and Paula find themselves on the run from a deadly gang, who are also searching for Mark Spencer—to find him and kill him for a past betrayal. So Lewis begins a difficult quest while his own world is threatened by ruthless men and gathering storm clouds.

Cliff Walking  

Sunday, September 13, 7 pm
Cold River Radio Show live with Stephen Russell Payne , author of Cliff Walking at Theater in the Woods. Tickets are $25 on sale at White Birch Books.

The Cold River Radio Show is a quintessential old-time radio show featuring exclusively New England based artists, performers, authors and storytellers. We’re selling tickets at the store and we’ll be selling books at the show for Vermont author STEPHEN PAYNE, who will be talking about his new book, CLIFF WALKING.
Set on the rocky and at times unforgiving coast of Maine, Payne’s emotionally powerful debut novel shares a poignant tale of loss and love that weaves together the lives of three desperate people who struggle mightily to find a way to save each other.

Kate Johnson is a recovering addict from California, married to a cunning, cruel man named Leland Johnson. When she gathers the strength to escape her hellish life, she leaves with her bright, artistic twelve-year-old son, Stringer, crossing Canada as stowaways on a freight train. They eventually find their way to Winter’s Cove, a provincial town on the coast of Maine.

Francis Monroe is a famous Maine seascape artist whose wife died windsurfing on the bay in front of their bungalow the year before, after losing her battle with breast cancer. Emotionally paralyzed since her death, Francis has been haunted both by her loss and his subsequent inability to paint. When Stringer appears at Francis’s bungalow, the meeting triggers events that dramatically alter the course of their lives.

Thrust into a life-threatening altercation, Stringer is forced to take action, and ends up facing felony charges. As Stringer and his loved ones do battle with the local sheriff and the politically aspiring state’s attorney, the citizens of Winter’s Cove have to navigate their own deep-seated prejudices, their beliefs about family and community, and the painful necessity to reexamine justice in their town.
